Too Fun!

While checking my blog subscriptions, I clicked on this new homebirth story and started reading.... Not only is it a great birth story, BUT I think the evidence points to the conclusion that this is probably the birth that one of our midwives left our labor to attend! I'm waiting for her confirmation, but it's kind of coincidental that both of us live in the valley, delivered on Tuesday morning and had midwives who delivered three babies that night. If that's the case, we birthed within five minutes of each other. How fun to find this out! Check out her story!

My own birth story is shaping up - I think I'll finish it today and then probably leave it to cure for a few days (i.e. leave it up on our computer so that I can run to the computer every five minutes to add something) and then post it. I'm afraid it is not as concise as the above mother - it's already over three typed pages, and I've just started in on second stage... *sigh*. :)

Have a very happy holiday!


  1. Congrats on the birth of your baby! Can't wait to read the story! :-)

  2. Congratulations! I'm exctied to read your birth story too:)

  3. Yup. I birthed at 6:43 and they said the other mommy birthed at 6:47. That is 4 minutes apart. Sorry I stole them from you. This is the sweet condensed version of her birth...I am a little conservative to let everyone on the world wide web read her story and I like to think of it as a sacred thing between her daddy, her, and I. I think we have actually met also. You were at their office at one of my last prenatals. I hope your birth went as well as mine! I could not have been cared for any better!
